There are loads of reasons I personally stick to the KJV. Sure people can claim errors upon error but usually they dont inspect things as one should.
But lets say for a moment the KJV is full of error, which off course it is not but just for the moment imagine all those critics actually found something significant, I would still stick to the KJV.
The reason is that if there ever was an error in the KJV it might of been a scribal error, or an error by accident. The new translations however seem to dwell of the path on purpose. Someone is trying to deceive on purpose. With more than 5000 manuscripts that agree with the KJV or the Geneva bible we have to be really arrogant to ignore the scriptures taken out of modern day bibles.
For instance they remove the fact that Jesus is God. Just look at 1 Timothy 3:16.
So, i’d rather sit with a few errors that were made by accident than an entire so called “bible” made to deceive people.
This is my theory if there were to be errors which i believe there are no errors in God’s word because He Himself said that He would preserve His Word.
Here is the Complete Jewish Bible’s version of Genesis 1:1-5
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was unformed and void, darkness was on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God hovered over the surface of the water. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. So there was evening, and there was morning, one day.
Now lets look at the King James Bible or Authorized version clearly stating that it was “the first day”:
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, andvoid; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said , Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, thatit was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and thedarkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day
See my point? The KJV clearly makes us to know that it was THE first day whereas the Complete Jewish Bible just says “one day” not “the first day”. This clearly promotes evolution.
The Syriac Peshitta would be heard to agree with the Byzantine text type. People basically believe that the KJV and the Peshitta agree but the Peshitta has many Alexandrian and Western readings and more supports Alexandrian text type than the Byzantine text type.
